Enohar's Revenge - Iron Invasion

Poisoning ogres' cooking pots is now part of the work of our 'heroes' in the Blasted Lands. Enohar Stormbrew, whose sister (I didn't catch her name) was killed in Nethergarde Keep, wants to take revenge on the Dreadmaul Ogres who came through the Dark Portal along with the new orcs. And the only way she knows is to poison their rat stew.

"The poison will slowly eat away at their insides. Causing a prolonged and painful death, just like they deserve. Please, for my sister".

Paoquan did not have the stomach for it. He was quite happy to fight the ogres, but poisoning their food? Not for him. "Family, friends, food. These are what matter most". No. He could not bring himself to use such dirty tricks.

I am a little less squeamish. The ogres have long been the enemies of humans and fought on the side of the orcs during the second war. In sororal solidarity, I acceded to Enohar's request.  All the same, I regret it now. It seems to be a tactic more suited to the scourge and their forsaken brethren than to heroes of the alliance. Our paladins, I am sure, will take the same view as Paoquan.
